    WTB mandolin

    I'm sorry I ever sold my Gibson army-navy mandolin. I miss it. I know it's not a uke but it does have 4 pairs of strings. I know many UUers have mote than ukes for instruments and am just checking if any are ready to let a mando go. possible trade for uke too.

    Kiwaya KTC-3

    I purchased this off UU Marketplace last year. This excellent ukulele is not getting played and I just purchased a "fixer upper boat" and could use the funds for marine parts [$$$$]. The uke came with a flimsy bag, so I purchased a hard "tweed" case for it for better protection.There are a few...

    Anyone made a paddle bass?

    I saw a you tube on the Kala paddle bass . Seems kinda expensive for a plastic one string fretless bass ($199). I've got plenty different size paddles and seems like it wouldn't be too hard to make one. https://kalabrand.com/products/ka-pb

    FS: Famous FLS-2PG Mahogany Laminate Longneck Pineapple Soprano

    Purchased this here on UU last year for a friend who decided to buy another Famous [by Kiwaya] soprano I had . I didn't mind as I had no other concert scale ukes. I recently bought a Kiwaya KTC-3 [solid hog] here on UU, so I no longer need this one. Same deal as I got, which was a great one...

    FS Custom steel string electric ukulele ,19 inch scale

    when I lived in WA, I asked a local luthier, Ron Hyde, to fix an old Vega Arthur Godfrey baritone. The uke was toast, but it had a really nice neck so he built an electric and used the neck. It plays like butter and sounds great. Uses the top 4 strings from an extra- light electric set. I'm not...

    Luna UKEBASSHT High Tide Bass ?

    Saw these for sale online for $150. anybody have one or played one. I think these are tuned an octave up, like a guitar. I've asked the seller. My uke group is short on bassists, so I bought an Ibanez Mikro. I put some tapewound strings on and for the price, I think it's way ahead of most uke...

    Playing in the heat

    It is hot [and humid] here on the gulf coast. Even when our Ukulele gigs [UOSA] are in the evenings it can be mighty hot. I have a fan and try to stay hydrated, but where my uke touches my body my shirt gets wet, no air circulation. I seem to remember in my mando days there was a device that...
